This year, we had dozens of face to face events with monthly meetups, a very successful first conference and of course a handful of hackathons in Stuttgart. We plan to continue these great traditions in 2017, kicking it off with a Hackathon from January 23 to 27.
Preparations for 12
We’re very proud of how the improvements to Nextcloud 11 have been received! We’re getting overwhelmingly positive responses on social media and the press wrote glowing reviews, here just a few of those:
- Tech republic: “An impressive, security-focused update”
- ZDNet: “[improvements] will make Nextcloud more attractive to enterprise customers”
- ITWire: “Nextcloud beefs up security”
- CIO: “the open source answer to mass surveillance”
- OStatic: “Nextcloud’s Promising Advances Continue”
We of course want to keep this winning streak up and Nextcloud 12 should be a great release. This hackathon will be an important milestone on the way and anyone interested in making that happen, be it through contribution of ideas, code, design or documentation is super invited to join.
We especially like to invite app authors. We’re very humbled by how much effort has been put in already to make apps ready for Nextcloud 11 and available in our new app store and we’d love to meet, discuss what else we can do to make app development for Nextcloud more awesome and spend some time hanging out.
We look forward seeing you during the week at our office at Kronenstraße 22A, 70173 in Stuttgart. We’ll generally start around 10 and between 7 and 8 in the evening, though we might return after dinner…
